Cooking in Eldoret

Lentil soup! It actually tasted just like the lentil soup Ivan and I make at home.

Enjoying our homemade dinner!

I love to cook and you all probably know that I am a picky eater with my strong dislike for both onions and tomatoes. It makes eating here a bit challenging. I have a lot of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches - my favorite back up meal.

I did have a chance to cook here last weekend. I made the Lupov's famous lentil soup and it was delicious. I was a happy camper! My friend Beth made Butternut Sqaush Curry and we also had cooked green beans and pineapple. It was a great meal.

My other cooking endeavour was making homemade chocolate chip/chunk cookies. It was a bit challenging as the brown sugar was a large hard square rock and I had to chip off pieces with a knife. I also discovered that you cannot set the oven temperature, the lady told me to turn it about half-way and that should work. I had to watch the cookies very closely. The end result -- DELICIOUS!! They were a huge hit and they were gone very quickly. I already have multiple request to make more, a few people even bought me some more chocolate bars.


  1. Yum yum yum!! Good work!

  2. I ditto Katherine's praises! Could you send some to Milwaukee at your earliest convenience? Please and thank you (the cookies, I mean)!
